Where Did the Time Go?

Well, earlier this week I found (by doing a google search, finding a blog, clicking a link - you know how it goes) the biggest time suck of all time!

Time suck #1: All of the Burda Issues (Russian Editions) from 1987 - 2011 - where you can click through EVERY SINGLE PAGE!

Time suck #2: All of the Burda Issues (German Editions) from 1952 - 1987 - again with EVERY SINGLE PAGE!

You guys...  aside from the fact that this is not helping my Burda addiction in the slightest, it is also a great look at fashion history - especially since we are getting a month-by-month look at how fashions and fads were changing.

March 1955 - Swoon!

May 1966 - Loving the lace!

September 1971 - I NEED this coat!

October 1971 - It is official - I love all coats from the early 70s.

March 1986 - Ugh.  Is it any wonder I hated clothes during my youth?

November 1989 - Apparently Burda ALWAYS had a things for crazy pants.
(Don't these look similar to the November 2011 pants?)

December 1997 - Lace pants - crazy stupid or crazy amazing?

December 2001 - Stunning!
I am wasting so much time here... not good, I need to get back to sewing!


  1. What an awesome find. However, you do know you can bookmark pages. (running away now from virtual items being lobbed at me). 8-)

    1. Oh, sure, I *could* bookmark them... But where is the fun in that?

  2. I'm almost too scared to click on those links, great find! The 80's really were bad for fashion weren't they?!

  3. Oh dear... I feel that many hours shall be wasted this week...

    Why don;t they reissue some of those beautiful old patterns!?!?!

    1. I know!!! Actually, the fact that they did have a few vintage patterns in their recent envelope releases gives me hope that they *might* re-release some of this amazing awesomeness, especially if their recent vintage patterns sell well.

  4. Ooh, thanks for sharing the link! I feel the time slipping away already...
